And Sunday Night When I Got Back
It felt neccessary to give this even its own post. When I returned to Angers, I had dinner with the Peauds. At dessert, Madame disappeared and returned with a chocolate Charlotte with twenty candles on it and everyone began singing Bon Anniversaire to me! It was one absolutely touching.
The Peauds even gave me another gift of a recipe book called Tante Marie. I had eariler expressed a wish to find a decent and basic French cookbook to start working with and exploring French cuisine. They told me that this book has been a part of French everyday cooking for decades and would be the best way to start. I even have an adorable cooking-themed French book mark for it.
Madame's mother who I had met two weeks ago for a very short visit sent a birthday card and a homemade travel sewing kit as she was very happy to meet a young mademoiselle who liked to work with her hands and since I seemed to be a true traveler to her, she felt something like this would serve me well.
Best 20th birthday ever. It would seem to be true that as the French say, this 20th year of my life is la belle âge.
